A Quote by George Herbert Walker Bush on control, home, investment, life, people, risk, and work

People must be free to work, to save, to own their own home, to take risks, to invest in each other and, in essence, to control their own lives.

A Quote by George G. Woodson on acceptance, action, concern, control, inferiority, nature, order, thinking, and worry

If you can control a man's thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself . If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on control, desires, possessions, salvation, and understanding

I understood . . . that those who desired salvation should act like the trustee who, though having control over great possessions, regards not an iota of them as his own.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on anger, bitterness, control, experience, learning, energy, power, and world

I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power that can move the world.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on control and senses

Not to have control over the senses is like sailing in a rudderless ship, bound to break to pieces on coming in contact with the very first rock.

A Quote by Freddie Mercury on control, love, people, problems, relationships, romance, and work

I am a romantic, but I do put up a barrier around myself, so it is hard for people to get in and to know the real me. I fall in love much too quickly and that results in me getting badly hurt. The problem with love is that you lose control and that is a very vulnerable state to be in. I would love to really have a beautiful relationship with somebody, but it never seems to work out. What I would like most of all is to be in a state of blissful love.

A Quote by Freda Adler on control, crime, needs, society, strength, vices, and virtue

If one would discern the centers of dominance in any society, one need only look to its definitions of "virtue" and "vice" or "legal" and "criminal," for, in the strength to set standards, resides the strength to maintain control.

A Quote by Freda Adler on chivalry and control

There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
